Indica, Sativa and Hybrid represent the three main categories of Cannabis which are predominantly known with hybrid cannabis seeds providing users with benefits from both Indica and Sativa.
One of the first known hybrid’s of an Indica and Sativa was known as ‘Skunk’. First bred in California by Sacred Seed Co. The result was revolutionary, a strain producing high yields in relatively short periods of time and the ability to withstand an array of climatic conditions hence enabling it to be grown indoors, outdoors, and in greenhouses.
Hybris cannabis strains can either be Indica dominant, Sativa dominant or a fifty-fifty split depending on whether you are inclined towards the cerebral high of Sativa or the body relaxation properties of Indica. The therapeutic properties of Cannabis have become prominent leading to a noticeable rise in demand. This has further lead an increase in experimentation with Cannabis strains resulting in the likes of Indica / Sativa Hybrid Seeds.
The process of breeding such hybrid seeds involves breeders picking the female plant and male pollen to produce a specific trait. Cannabinoid Content is one of the main reasons for breeders opting for producing Indica/Sativa Hybrids. Research has enabled breeders to maintain specific concentrations of cannabinoids, with strains either maximizing or minimizing the levels of THC and CBD.
Therapeutic Properties of Indica/Sativa Hybrid Seeds are known to provide certain therapeutic benefits. Whilst Indica is known to be aid insomnia along with providing pain relief whilst Sativa is known to be helpful for depression, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and even fatigue. Therefore, depending upon the dominant strain, individuals can incur the benefits of both Indica and Sativa via the hybrid strain; hybrids can be especially helpful when tailored to a user’s specific need.
